Incoming e-mails not being received

Hi I am not able to receive emails on my Telkom account on my IPad. I am however able to send emails.


i have spoken to Telkom and reset my IPad but still no luck.


The message  I keep receiving is that ‘ the Mail Server pop3.telkomsa.net is not responding. Verify you have entered the correct details in Mail settings ‘. I have done this and still have had no luck. 


Any help would be appreciated.

They are aware of it and working on it.
